Dear Will,

I've been asked by colleagues for clarification on the following. By 'Single Maths' do you mean A-Levels with a subject title of simply 'Mathematics' (i.e. excluding Further/Applied Mathematics) or any mathematics course?

Once we have received your clarification, we will process your request.

Regards,
Rachael Maguire

Dear Rachel,

Thank you for your reply. Yes - I meant Mathematics excluding Further/Applied Mathematics. Hope that helps and looking forward to your reply.

Yours sincerely,

Will

Dear GLPD.Info.Rights,

It seems that the system wants me to re-clarify my request. By "Single Maths", I mean an A-Level course with simply the title of "Mathematics"(i.e. excluding Further/Applied Mathematics).

Hopefully this clarifies my request and I'm looking forward to hearing back from you. Thanks in advance.

Yours sincerely,
Will
